Meet Karen Aydelott. One of the most inspiring triathletes you'll ever meet.

Thank you to all of the amazing ladies who have responded to our call for athletes! We are reading through each and every one of the applications received and will do our absolute best to select women who embody the Coeur values. Women who can draw others into a lifestyle of health and fitness. Women who take training and racing seriously but not themselves. Women who inspire. Women who encourage. Women who motivate.

He's both History and Historian. Meet Bob Babbitt and come with us to Babbittville

Let us tell you about a place. No, wait, it’s a person. Well, it’s sort of a person and a place. It/He is part historian and part endurance sports history. If we talk about “Him”, we’d say that we think he is simultaneously, the nicest, funniest and most well respected individual in all of triathlon.

Heart and Courage at Ironman Hawaii

I think we have mentioned it enough but Coeur is French for heart and the root of the noun courage. Or more precisely the abstract noun “courage” since I suppose you can’t actually touch it. While we’re on a definitional/grammatical tangent, I’ll go on to mention that courage is defined as the ability or willingness to confront fear, danger, uncertainty or intimidation.


So, why does that matter? To answer that question, we’ll have to go back a couple of months.

One Coeur-ageous Athlete

We looked over to our left and happened to see one of the Challenged Athlete Foundation ("CAF") competitors in her race chair.  She was a petite woman and was at a dead stop about halfway up a hill.  For the most part no one was watching and it was apparent that her arms were about to give out.  Before I go on to tell the rest of this, I have to just say that I have re-written this next section twice and I just can't find the words to convey how incredible, inspiring, emotional and moving we found this to be.
